trolling for comments
Today I have a couple of questions for my runner friends, feel free to chime in.
1. I am getting into my long runs for my next race. Today was a 16. But. I had childcare issues so I had to break it into to two pieces. 8 early this morning and the other 8 a few hours later. Does it still count? How much do I lose in terms of training if I have to break it up like that occasionally?
2. I just just got this watch (for my anniversary. Thanks, dear). I really like certain features but some of the calibrating seems to be off. It was at least a mile off on distance on both runs. Also. since I was timing separately on my stopwatch i can tell that the individual mile times get less and less accurate as I get t the end of the run. By the end it's wildly inaccurate. Is anyone else using these Nike devices (they all use the same sensor)? Does it just take a while for it to figure out my stride and such or is this a problem that other people have had? If so, were you able to solve it?
Thank you for your consideration, that is all.
